Product Description

Essentials of Health Policy and Law, Fourth Edition provides students of public health, medicine, nursing, public policy, and health administration with an introduction to a broad range of seminal issues in U.S. health policy and law, analytic frameworks for studying these complex issues, and an understanding of the ways in which health policies and laws are formulated, implemented, and applied.

- A how-to chapter on writing a policy analysis offers readers step-by-step instructions and examples for writing a policy brief.
- Valuable instructor’s resources, including PowerPoint slides, test questions for each chapter, blog post updates, and more.
